In the 70’s, recycling art was wide spread and very popular at this point in history and was called the ‘Art Nouveau’. Like many artistic movements, art nouveau was made from many different styles. There were common links but it is this uniqueness that epitomises the movement, its only one character being an aim to try to defy the established order of the fine and applied arts of the time. This "new art" was hated in Britain by the established contemporaries, the critics referring to it as "The Squirm".
During this time the designs and and artworks made were very intouch with nature and reflected some environmental issues. Commic art was also a very big and continuioulsy growing aspect of graphic design in the 1970’s. artists in these times used plane but bright colours and simple single line drawing with sharp and bold lines. The use of dark colurs and light/ bright colours contributed to how they portrayed th “good guys’ and the “ bad guys” hence the good guys being light and the bad guys being dark. As seen in this pic.
